Did You Know That Kevin Clash Won A Bunch Of Emmy Awards Last Week?


You remember Kevin

Clash don’t you?

He’s the Sesame Street Elmo

puppeteer, and one of the producers and directors of the show, who was forced

to leave the show last fall after a scandal erupted, regarding accusations of Clash having inappropriate sexual relations with young underage boys..

Well, this past Friday, Crash won three Emmy awards at the Daytime Entertainment Creative Arts

Emmy Awards.

At the event, Clash shared an award as the executive

co-producer of Sesame Street, which won Outstanding

Pre-School Children’s Series, and shared another one for Outstanding Directing in a Children’s Series. He also won an Emmy

for Outstanding Performer in a Children’s Series.

Currently, there are several lawsuits that have been filed

accusing Clash of sexual abuse, and, since last fall, except for an official statement

released by him announcing that he was voluntarily leaving Sesame Street, Clash

has not been seen or heard from since the scandal broke out.

One assumes, of course, that he was not present for the

awards show last Friday, and, out of curiosity, I wonder what was the reaction by

the gathered audience there when his name was announced. Was there any

response? Was there just a smattering of applause out of politeness or stone silence?

And who accepted the awards for him, and what did they say

in their acceptance speeches for him?

No doubt it must have been very uncomfortable.
